At least 18 soldiers were killed in a terror attack on an Army camp in Uri in Jammu and Kashmir on September 18. All four terrorists, who attacked the camp, were killed.
Amidst growing tension over Uri attack by Pakistani terrorists on Sunday, a video of the country’s Defence Minister Khawaja M Asif threatening to use nuclear weapon against India is doing the rounds on social media. The video shows the Pakistani defence minister telling Geo News: "If Pakistan’s security is threatened, we will not hesitate in using tactical (nuclear) weapons.”
Prime Minister Narendra Modi after a fiery speech in Kerala where he blamed Pakistan for exporting global terrorism has now called for a briefing on the Indus Waters Treaty.
One of the suggestions is to turn off the Indus river tap that waters much of Pakistan
I didn't know that India has the ability to stop the Indus River. That's usually extremely difficult.
The US can do that with the Colorado, with the Imperial dam. But that's a unique case; the Colorado by that point isn't much of a river because so much of it has been diverted.
